When Amelia Earhart disappeared from the world on July 2nd, 1937 with her vanished many secrets. Unbeknownst to the world, Amelia left four daughters on an enchanted island in the vast waters of Puget Sound. Motherless and very much alone, the four girls made ramshackle instruments out of various beach rubble. For many years they lived off the land, and when they were not spearing fish or trapping rabbits, they played music... the most beautiful music the world had ever heard.
One day some business folk from Seattle were yachting near the island, when an enormous storm capsized their boat. When they swam safely to shore, they were greeted by the heavenly croonings of the four girls, the lost daughters of Amelia Earhart. In no time at all they had homes, and warm meals... but they never forgot where they came from and those first years on the island. The remnants of that magical place are now woven deeply into every aspect of their music. They are Amelia's Only Daughters.
Amelia's Only Daughters is a three-part harmony, folk and acoustic-rock band. The band consists of Colleen (guitar, singer), Natalie (piano, harmonica, etc.), Anne (upper harmony), and Stephanie (lower harmony).
Listen to their beautiful recreations of traditional folk songs or become seduced by their originals pertaining to love and things never achieved.

This is a continuous recording. If you don't want to listen to the down-time between songs, you can click 'next' on your player; Each track is cued to start at the beginning of each song.
This is NOT a professional live recording, but rather only taken from an amateur recorder with amateur equipment. Regardless, the sound quality is decent.
Please do not review the music based on your perceptions of the recording's quality but rather of the quality of the music.

i have great respect for female groups and this is the first "folk-indie" all-female i have ever heard. I first listened to (Skyward) Bound on their website and i was taken back by the lead vocalist's full and beautiful voice. i also enjoyed the harmonica. this band has a great sound and i hope the get as much fame as they want
